When I turn on my packard bell ixtreme 6052 nothing appears yet it does see computer but does not even go to bios and harddrive read light remains on and harddrive is constantly ticking like it's...


This could be lots of things (bad HD, bad Mother board, bad RAM,etc...) first you need to narrow down the possible cause, open the computer, take out every thing that can be unplugged (I MEAN EVERYTHING) RAM, PCI cards, VIDEO cards, all storages HD, CD ROM, etc... just leave the CPU and power supply plugged in, than power up the computer and listen for BEEP's if you hear a series of BEEP's this means the CPU, power supply and mother board are GOOD, than (with power OFF each time) re-install the components you taken out (ONE at a time) to see which device causes the system crash... I've seen a modem card causing a system mall function once rediculous but true...

Good luck!

Unable to see monitor. saying no signal. Will not switch to monitor. When I turn computer on I hear a beep beep beep beep. Then nothing


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your
((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Computer monitor don't work at all.


So basically your monitor's power supply system died.
Nothing much a non-technician could do about it.
Get it repaired, if under warranty, get a replacement before the coverage duration expires.

On startup the hard drive makes continuous beeping sound and small orange light comes on


Its not Hard Drive that makes beeping sound its your mainboard. Check in Bios (if possible) that HD is recognised properly. Disconnect HD form computer and then start computer without HD to see wheather the problem is still there. If not, connect another HD (preferably not more than 40 GB) and use a new IDE cable if applicable. Some HP PCs record in Bios their original HD serial number preventing replacement of HD. In worst case the HD controller on Mainboard is not working properly or may be defected.

Turns on, no bios no screen, just beep.


Now the question is, when the computer first starts up and you hear the beep, that is where it will tell you what your problem is depending on the beep you get.

One Long and one Short Beep = Motherboard issue
One Long and Two Short Beeps = Video (Mono/CGA Display Circuitry) issue
One Long and Three Short Beeps = Video (EGA) Display Circuitry
Three Long Beeps = Keyboard error
One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display = Video Display Circuitry

If it is the last one, then try doing the following.

1. Disconnect external devices = Unplug everything from the back of the computer and then restart it. If it starts up, then it is one of the peripherals that is plugged in. You will then need to turn off the computer and gradually plug each one in and turn the PC back on to see if the peripheral is the problem. If that isn't the problem, the proceed to #2.

2. Cable check = With the computer shut down, make sure all the cables within the PC are attached properly. Once you finish doing that, turn on the PC and that isn't the cause, continue on...

3. Disconnect all expansion cards = Sometimes another expansion card can become loose and cause various amounts of issues. Remove each expansion card (clean them if necessary of dust) and replace them. Turn on your PC. If it doesn't start move to the next step.

4. Disconnect all drives = disconnect the data cables from the CD-ROM, hard drive, and floppy drive from the motherboard (make sure to mark them so you remember where they plugged into). This will either remedy the situation or you will see an error when you reconnect each device one at a time to determine which device/cable is causing the issue.

5. Remove the RAM = Loose or bad RAM can cause PC's to not boot or boot incorrectly. Remove each stick and replace them one by one alone in each memory slot. If the PC boots up in each slot, then your golden, but if a slot is defective, then your motherboard is damaged in that slot. You can still use the other slots as long as you use the defective one. If a stick of RAM doesn't allow your computer to boot up, its quite possible that stick of RAM is defective and will need to be replaced. But make sure you try out all the other options before throwing away a stick merely because the PC doesn't boot. A faulty stick can be the problem, but if the problem lies elsewhere, you may be throwing away a good stick of memory thinking it may be bad.

6. Disconnect and reconnect the CPU = Most CPU's are easy to remove, but if you aren't familiar with it. Read your manual on how to remove the CPU. Once you remove it and re-seat the CPU, reboot your PC.

7. If after you have tried all the previous steps and your PC still doesn't boot, then it is most likely that your motherboard, CPU, RAM, or power supply is defective and must be replaced. If you are unfamiliar with fixing the problem (or have never built your own PC) you can opt to have someone repair it or you can start with the cheapest option of purchasing a single stick of new memory and see if the memory was indeed the original problem. If the PC still does not boot with new memory, then it is most likely your motherboard, CPU, or power supply that is dire straights.

I have a medion 3.4 turns on but dont boot up and leaves the screen blank prob started when ciosed down would not open up


If it is beeping more than once when you start it up, you will need to either find the error codes for your motherboard/bios or post your motherboard type and model and bios type and revision here. Simple possible solutions: Make sure you do not have a floppy in your floppy disk drive Make sure there is no CD in your CD drive Make sure your HD is connected properly, and set to Master or CS (if your MoBo supports cable select) and has an Operating system installed on it. Make sure your RAM is present and seated properly (in the sockets all the way and aligned) If none of these solves your problem please get back to us with your mobo model and bios type / revision and error code. It IS possible that 1 or more of your hardware components is dead or malfunctioning.

My monitor goes to sleep mode at startup & can't access safe mode


Turn the computer off, open the case and remove the RAM. Does the computer beep when you turn it on with no RAM? If not, your motherboard is dead.

If your computer beeps, turn it off again and try putting one stick of RAM in. If the computer doesn't turn on normally, try the other stick of RAM.

Also, try taking out the video card and putting it back in.

Good luck,
Jason

Gateway gt4016 problem


Check your monitor on another computer. If it is ok connect it to your bad computer. Open the CPU case and unplug all the data cables and power cables to HDD, floppy and cd/dvd. Remove keyboard and mouse. also remove pci cards if any. You didn't mention about video card. I guess it is onboard. Now put it on an see. If nothing happens blame the motherboard.
